It's not easy to photograph California Quail chicks!

Could these all be one family?  How do they protect the chicks
from coyotes and crazy hunters?

Is Karen Strohmeyer totally unstable??? She'll have to kill me!! OP-ED!!

   UPDATE:  This is a very sad thing to watch. Every since she had her first mental stability problems she told me about after her husband was fired from CHP

Google maps more colorful??

  Has anyone else noticed that Google maps are more colorful.  It helps to tell one street from another instead of the black and white or sepia or whatever it was.

   Thanks Google!
